Taking to Twitter, the prime minister shared “good news” from the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP), saying that inflows through RDAs and its accounts and deposits had broken records.
Roshan Digital Account achieves more milestones. Inflows crossed $1.5 bn on Friday, with investment in Naya Pakistan Certificates surpassing $1 bn,” he tweeted.

“Alhamdulillah, funds received through RDA have crossed $1bn. I would like to thank our overseas Pakistanis for their overwhelming response; also appreciate the efforts of State Bank of Pakistan and banks for achieving this significant milestone in such a short period,” the premier had tweeted two months ago.
